JetBrains Rider 2017.2 Help

Tips and Tricks

Exporting your code to HTML

You can use JetBrains Rider for pretty printing code in any of the supported languages to syntax-colored HTML. This may come in handy if you need to display your code on the web, or if you consider an environment-friendly alternative to printing your code on paper.

All you need to do is to open the desired code file in the editor and choose File | Export to HTML in the main menu (if you want to export only a part of your code file, make a selection before invoking this command). In the dialog that opens, you will be able to choose additional options, such as exporting all files in the solution directory or including line numbers to the output.

The resulted HTML will display the code in exactly the same way as you see it in the editor, retaining syntax highlighting and formatting.

Using Productivity Guide

JetBrains Rider analyzes features you use during your development sessions and reminds you of the features you might have missed.

Choose Help | Productivity Guide from the main menu to display the list of features with usage statistics and tips.

Besides analysing your personal usage of features, you can discover similar features that you have never used. One of the ways to do so is to sort features by Group, and look for unused features that are next to the frequently used ones. You can quickly check how to use the feature by selecting it and studying the corresponding tip that opens.
